    i alterante between sets, but my heavy set is usually left under / right over

    which is weird because im right handed

    just feels real weird the other way

    I prefer that exact combination myself, and I too am right handed.

    But it can rip a girl's pantyhose... just saying... it's a bit of an akward moment.

    My last DL max was 441lbs. Brad Gillingham(multi time IPF Heavyweight champ) pulls around 900 using double overhand hook grip. That knowledge is what prompted me to try it.

    Very cool. Thanks. For some reason it didn't even cross my mind to use it on rows as well. I think I'll need to do that to condition my thumbs since I'm only DL'ing once a week. Maybe I'll try it with chinups too.

    I switch it up, but in no particular pattern. Always go back to the stronger side for max lifts though.

    i never switch; the reason being is in wrestling and fighting, i always grip bodylocks with non dominant palm in, and i do all pulls the same way so the specificity strength transfers over as much as possible

    my first 2 reps are always overhand, then the reps after the first two I alternate grips every rep.
